There are ups and downs in every player’s form, but when the slump coincides with the team’s loss, some of them are not as lucky as others, to get away with it easily.

What has gone wrong with Bhuvneshwar Kumar?

Bhuvneshwar has been off-coloured since the tour of England in 2014 We have often seen fast bowlers in Indian cricket leaving a telling impression on their debut and having a wonderful first couple of years, but all off a sudden, they fade away quickly without having a long career for the country. Irfan Pathan had a sensational debut to his career, showing the potency to trouble the batsman, but he soon was hit by injury

Time to form new core of pace-attack in Tests for India

Where do Indian bowling attack fail? Since the Test series against Australia in 2013, India haven’t had a good run in the Tests. They were winless in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand and could only manage one victory in last 13 Test matches which is not a good sign for a number four ranked Test team. The batting unit clicked in three overseas trips, but the bowling department failed to rise to the occasion, and consequently, I

(From Left) Dhoni, Jadeja, Raina, Ashwin It has always been said that the performance of Team India in Test matches (especially overseas) has gone down due to the Indian Premier League. The players do not opt for a good amount of rest before a major tournament and they also choose not to skip the IPL due to various reasons. But what we have witnessed in this year’s IPL is that quite a few Indian players have played so much I
